Eucharistic Adoration
EuchAdorationPrayer is the heart of what we are as a parish. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament draws us back to God, reminds us of the virtues of silence and humility, and renews our own spirits in this busy hectic world. Every Saturday, from midday until  5.45pm, an opportunity exists for quiet personal prayer in the presence of the Lord. Do join us. Give time for your spirit to breathe, in the presence of Him who put the breath in you.

Lord our God,
you have given us the true bread
from heaven.
In the strength of this food
may we always walk with you,
may we live always by your life
and rise in glory on the last day.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Meditation on the Stations of the Cross
1. Jesus is condemned to death. Do I ever criticise others, blame others? Do I recognise my own fault before I look for the faults of others?
2. Jesus takes up the Cross. Do I accept crosses or burdens in my life without complaint? Do I ever load burdens onto others?
3. Jesus falls the first time. When I fall or make mistakes do I get up again or am I inclined to give up?
4. Jesus meets his mother. Do I recognise the hurt even unintentional that my life can cause to others especially those I love the most?
5. Simon helps Jesus carry the Cross. Am I always grateful to those who offer me help or who share a burden with me?
6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. Do I always recognise Christ’s image in others and can others see the image of Christ in me?
7. Jesus falls the second time. If at first I don’t succeed do I keep trying – do I persevere?
8. Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem. Even when I’m weighed down by the difficulties of my own life am I always ready and willing to help others and to put their needs before my own?
9. Jesus falls the third time. Am I ever the cause of others falling or do I comment on the faults or failures of others?
10. Jesus is stripped of his garments. Am I willing to deprive myself of attachment to material things to give more time to God?
11. Jesus is nailed to the Cross. Can I bear pain without always seeking instant relief? Am I ever guilty of causing pain to others?
12. Jesus dies on the Cross. Am I willing to die to my own sinfulness and selfishness? Do I always want my own way?
13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross. Have I a devotion to Mary in my life? As Jesus gave us His Mother from the Cross do I accept Mary as my Heavenly Mother who intercedes for me?
14. Jesus is laid in the tomb. Do I live my life in such a way that I can be confident the grave will not be the end for me but that I will share in Christ’s Resurrection?
